More Chickens...and LAMBS!
Today the replacement laying chicks arrived. A combination of production reds, golden comet and araucanas are settled in the brooder.
A morning lamb check found a little ram up and doing well. His mother has been keeping him far away from human contact and I finally gave up. He is a black and white spotted little guy. Sadly, this afternoon while checking the flock, I found his twin, another ram, dead in the woods. Possibly born dead as he was huge and mom never finished cleaning him up.
The afternoon check revealed this set of twins. Looks like a ram and a ewe. Flashy little ones these!!
I feel quite sure there will be more overnight arrivals as many of the girls are very close.
